The capital of Qatar, Doha, offers plenty to explore and here is an option for a three-day itinerary that helps you experience the best of the city.
Before you begin, ensure to find conveniently located accommodation. When looking for the best hotels in Doha, choose a property that’s within easy reach of the airport as well as attractions like the Souq Waqif and Doha Corniche. Check if it has dining and spa options and if it has garnered a Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice award.
For cultural insights, visit some of the city’s museums like the striking Museum of Islamic Art and the National Museum of Qatar at the Corniche. Afterwards, explore the Souq Waqif, a historical market next to Al Najada Doha Hotel by Tivoli where everything from spices, handicrafts and souvenirs to gold and falcons are sold.
Look to get out of the city and experience the thrills of dune bashing via a 4×4 vehicle in the desert, amongst the best things to do in Doha. You can also plan a visit to the Inland Sea (Khor Al Adaid) and once back in the evening, consider a relaxed stroll along the Corniche as well as a sunset dhow cruise.
Head to the Katara Cultural Village which showcases traditional architecture and hosts various exhibitions and performances; beside it is the Katara Beach offering plenty of water sports too. Try to also get in some shopping at retail hubs like the Venice-style Villaggio Mall complete with canals and gondola rides!
